How can we encourage students to attend office hours?

Reported by EdSurge, while faculty office hours can be an incredibly helpful resource for students to get 1-on-1 time to talk through academic roadblocks, the concept of office hours can be both intimidating and inflexible for students.

Virtual office hours offer two large benefits – the flexibility for one’s schedule, as well as a potentially less intimidating meetup opportunity.

The takeaway? Our faculty want our students to succeed. How can we reconsider our existing student services to make sure we are as accommodating as possible to ensure that happens?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
